Question about Televison & Video

I have a Philips Mod 28PW6006/05 TV. The set works fine and when running for a time, switches to standby. If you restart the set from the remote it usually, starts up again. looks like a thermal fault. Any ideas?

    Thanks Samrat. But would that not give a more intermittent problem?

    I would have thought this would lead to random start up/shut down?

    Is there any other known heat related problem in this chassis??

    Hi Ginko.

    This is definitely a heat problem. Something is overheating, as it only happens when the set has been running for a period of time.

    It can be triggered by heating the area around the mains rectifier /reservoir Capacitor, and will restart on cooling. I had hoped you would be aware of any Stock-Faults on this chassis, as I have spent over 15 years as a TV Engineer. It is just that I have been out of the business for some time now, and am not familiar with the new chassis and do not have a circuit diagram for this one.

    Any serious suggestions will be appreciated.

    Bill H.

Yes you are absolutely right on the overheating the tv is working fine but stops after sometime when the capacitor gets overheated.and again tv start working properly when the capacitor gets if the capacitor is faulty the tv will not stat at all.but as its working for some time that means the capacitor is either got loose from the circuit board or its got weak,so after overheating the capacitor is not able to handle the current passing through the tv shuts down after overheating ,its quite clear that its power the capacitor is located on the power supply will just have to dry solder on whole board and check out first .if its working properly after dry solder that means it is a loose capacitor problem.but if its not solving the problem after dry solder the capacitor has to be will have to check out each capacitor on the power supply board.either the capacitor will be leaked at its top or got slightly burned or bulged from its top side.the capacitors on the board has to be checked .this will help cabn get replacement capacitors at thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

That is not overheating.

This is a regular CRT, and not a rear projection TV , it has no fan, no thermal sensor, and no heating problems of this kind.

The problems occurr because of an internal fault, usually due to a faulty capacitor. The TV restarts after a while just because capacitors discharge the electricity that they are holding after this time.

This kind of problem is usually due to a fault either on power supply board or on flyback converter.

Both parts must be tested before replacement.

A first tist can be done visually inspecting the board , looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, cold solder joints, blown components and burnt areas.

If nothing is seen at a glance , the power board first , and then the flyback converter and mainboard must be tested.

Your TV capacitors will hold charge for a while, even when power cord is unplugged, and can release a dangerous high voltage discharge. Do not service the TV by yourself unless you have previous experience in repairing TVs.

Many thanks.

Hi There,

Sounds like your Startup Relay is intermittent. Contacts are closing (tv on) then dropping out (tv off). Worn or burned contacts do not make a good connection when they close and start to burn and overheat causing the contacts to open. When they cool down they may make contact again for a very short period. You need to replace the Start up relay.

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Thank You

I have a Philips tv model 42FD9954/69c but it doesn't have a remote so I cant turn it on how do you get it to work with a universal remote ?!

Most TVs have controls on the side of the TV to operate power, volume and channels, if the power button puts it to standby then use the Chanel up or down to turn it on! Depending on the universal remote being used just select the code relevant to the make of TV you are connecting to!

Toshiba MD9DM1 remote code

Codes to check with Toshiba T with Philips universal remote control are:
0159 0178 0109 0120 0181 0105 0049 0095 0170 0260 0358 0394 0924 0012 0095 0117 0141
Switch OFF and switch ON the TV set, by its front panel power button, and wait to siwch off the standby LED, before trying each code.

No standby light

Depending on the brand and MODEL number here is what I think happened.

All TV sets have a Standby power supply. It runs all the time even if set is off but plugged in.

It supplies among other things the power (usually less then 12 volts DC to run the remote circuitry---It usually is not fuse protected so if a strike hit nearby it may have come in via the power cord.

Trouble is almost certain to be in the standby supply.

I don't have my booklet that came with my universal philips remote. i don't know the codes that connect it to the tv.

Turn on your TV. With the remote, press learn.
Press up then standby continuously until the TV switches off and at that point store the setting on the remote commander as that is the code that it has found itself.
If in doubt, google your remote control number and follow their instructions.
Hope that helps.

No Picture on Toshiba 42RV530U

I had a similar problem to this yesterday. Tv is same Toshiba model as you mentioned about 4 months old. In my case, after the TV working perfectly following installation, the standby LED on the front (the one that is red on standby and green when on) went to a flashing orange (after switching on from standby) and the picture disappeared although the sound remained OK. I was unable to get any response from the setup or menu on the remote, otherwise I would have tried resetting the TV. Regardless of how much switching off/on (including disconnecting the powerlead and leaving for few minutes), disconnecting all peripherals, etc., nothing helped. I looked up Toshiba's web site and under support they basically suggest switching off the TV and restarting using the onset buttons (not the remote) and pressing the menu button (again the one on the set (not the remote) and if you could get the menu box to appear then reset to default settings. I tried this but the results were the same. I therefore thought the TV was defective. However, after much frustration I did the following (I think): 1) Disconnect everything from the TV 2) Powered up from the mains switch whilst keeping BOTH the startup and menu buttons on the side of the TV pressed down. The result in my case was that the standby led and one of the two beside it flashed green simultaneously. However, when the buttons were released, the TV started up the same (flashing LED orange and sound no picture). 3) Pretty well defeated at this point, after doing the procedure at (2) several times with the same results, I somehow thought of pressing the standby button on the remote either whilst the two buttons on the set were depressed or just after they were released. I am afraid I cannot remember which and cannot replicate the problem as I don't know what caused it in the first place. 4) The TV then started normally ( no reception as I had not aerial connected, etc.,) but I was able to gain access to the screen menu/setup buttons via the remote which were in French rather than English. However, after reconnecting everyrthing the TV has worked fine (obviously after resetting the language via the menu). I am sorry I cannot be more precise but I hope this might be of help to someone with a similar problem.

Philips TV HDMI CEC EasyLink tries to control Cable set top box

I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.

On the TV press menu picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box: on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON
If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.
